The Circle frontman and former Van Halen star, Sammy Hagar, was the latest interview guest of ‘Rock This with Allison Hagendorf’ this week, and he talked about his first-ever book as well as his current days in the self-quarantine.
As you may already know, The Red Rocker released his first book named ‘Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock’ back in 2012, and the book tells the story of his solo career with Chickenfoot, his exciting lifestyle between drugs, groupies, and being a celebrity. The book is still available on many platforms as paperback and hardcover editions.
In the interview, right after revealing that his upcoming book will be filled with recipes for his favorite cocktails and drinks, Sammy looked back to the days he wrote his first autobiography and answered if he has any regrets while writing the book. Sammy admitted that he wishes he would have written more about his Van Halen days.
Here is what Sammy Hagar told:
“I included everything. There’s nothing I didn’t say. I kind of wish I would have been a little more conservative about the Van Halen years. But I was angry when I wrote the book. They threw me out of the band, and they did it ruthlessly. And I don’t care what anyone says — God rest Eddie’s soul; I love him to death — but him and his brother are pretty tough guys to deal with, if they go against you.”
“They really made it harder on me at a weird time in my life. So I was angry when I wrote that stuff, but I didn’t enhance it. Believe me, if anything, I was kind to those gentlemen at that time in our lives.
And I’m so glad we came back together. But if I’d waited a little longer, I wouldn’t have been so angry and there wouldn’t have been so much angst in it.”
